  What is VoIP

Can I use VoIP on my dial up internet connection?


 
Technically yes but to get the best out of VoIP then you really need a broadband internet connection.

Whilst VoIP services will work on dial up modem connections as low as 33k you will experience a poorer quality of service when compared to broadband. The chances are that if you are still using a 33k modem then the rest of your PC is just as antiquated so VoIP won't work anyway. If you must (or simply havn't got a choice) then use a 56k modem (cheap as chips nowadays)

VoIP will work best on cable and ADSL broadband connections.
